You’ll Never Squint Again With This Automatically-Resizing Font

Gizmodo: ''If you’ve ever tried to glance at your computer screen and read something from across the room, you know it’s a pretty futile effort, no matter how hard you squint. This demo website has a solution: dynamically changing font size based on your distance from the screen. The catch? It wants to watch you read.

Realtime Responsive Typography, a project by Marko Dugonjić, is just an experiment, but it’s an interesting one. By using your webcam—after receiving your explicit permission to do so, of course—the page will track your face and adjust the font to an optimal size based on how far away your are. Of course, it’s a little buggy in its current, prototype form. You’ll notice the font size bounces around a lot. And popular desk activities like slouching and drinking coffee only make the problem worse.'' (Realtime Responsive Typography, Software)
